Lately, I've been reading more e-books than physical ones and let me tell you, that sucks. Not that I'm complaining that I've got books to read, god no. It's just that I have a tiny tinyyy little problem with e-books, which is: I start way too many.
With physical books, my maximum number of what I'm usually reading is 6. I can't read more than 6 books at once or else the plots will get all mixed up and that will just be a book remix which actually, on second thought, sounds pretty good.
With e-books, if I have 50 of them on my device, I'm gonna start all of them. WHY?? I'll tell you why. Because I usually read what I'm in the mood for and thankfully, I've got everything covered: from mystery, to romance, to YA, to books about cute puppies.
I have no idea how this gets done after all, with me still remembering what's going on in these books, whose father that one is and what creature is that and which sister is still alive. It's a lot to take in, but somehow, when I'm finishing like 4, 5 books all at once, I feel satisfied. And all those stories I've assimilated all at once overwhelm me more than they would if I read them separately, so to speak. All those feels just come flooding in!!
Right now, I'm jumping between review books (2 of which I'm almost done with, yesss!!!), some YA ones from series I've started long ago and I thought it was time to get back to them, some Bukowski and some photography ones and of course, last but not least, MY COFFEE has to be present.

I often find myself wishing I had more time to read though. Years, years ago, I thought of reading as more like a chore rather than a hobby, thanks to how the school system is nowadays. I didn't feel any pleasure or accomplishment when I finished one, I just thanked god it was over AND NOW I DO THIS FOR FUN? Hm. Who would've thought.
I'm certainly glad that I got to see what an enriching activity this is and also, that I'm not just liking one genre, that I'm loving them all, which means I am not missing out on any good books.
I'd love to hear what your favorite genres are and what you're currently reading ^^
